BEACH CLUBS & PARTIES
Puerto Banus located just 7km from Marbella is still the ultimate luxury holiday destination in Spain, and a firm favourite party destination. Banus attracts everyone from celebrities, stag and hen parties and of course the entire cast of TOWIE who make their annual descent on the famous beach parties and clubs.
So if you want to party with the rich and famous, read on to discover the ‘must visit’ places to go for the best champagne spray parties, beach clubs and a little bit of celeb spotting.
Best Pool Party – Ocean Club
In the heart of Puerto Banus overlooking the beach and expertly designed around a swimming pool which is among the largest in Europe, Ocean Club is an impressive sight to be seen. Still a firm favourite among the TOWIE crew, Billie Faiers and sister Sam were spotted topping up their tans and showing off their bikini bodies here this summer.
Best Beach Club on a Budget – Plaza Beach
At the entrance to the port next to the Benabola apartments, you can’t miss Plaza Beach’s prime spot. Recently re-furbished to an impeccable standard the who’s who of Marbella and Banus are regular visitors to the weekly parties which take place here.
You may have seen an episode of TOWIE’s Gemma Collins, James Argent and Lydia Bright amongst other TOWIE cast members filming an episode here this summer?
Best for Sundowners – La Sala By the Sea
A 5 minute walk from the main entrance to the port and you will arrive at La Sala Beach (formally Buddha Beach), La Sala is a gorgeous beach club with a cool and funky vibe, reserve a bed during the day or pop into one of their 3 bars overlooking the stunning beach for a cheeky cocktail or Cava, all priced at 12.50€. Opt for one of their healthy and delicious fruit smoothies of you are T total and enjoy the sun setting out at sea.
Best Beach Club – Nikki Beach Amazing Sundays, Marbella
One of the original and still the best beach club in our opinion now in its second decade, Nikki Beach has recently undergone a huge renovation project which includes the addition of a fantastic pool.
Nikki beach is a world of luxury and glamour, attracting party goers from all over and if you can only come once…their ‘amazing Sundays’ are definitely not to be missed, every Sunday throughout the season.
Best for cocktails - astral
Astral cocktail bar
This is a really fun and completely unique bar and cocktails happen to be their speciality.
The whole thing is made from a wooden galleon with fantastic high wooden bar stools on wheels, that you almost need a ladder to get up onto, serving the largest and fanciest cocktails I have ever seen, you’ve just got to see it for yourself. These cocktails pack more fruit than your local greengrocer!
Best for Dinner- La Sala
La Sala is one of those places that have got it just right; this place is buzzing every night all year round with both holidaymakers and locals of all ages coming to enjoy a meal or just a drink in the bar.
On a warm evening the terrace at La Sala is a great place to get together with friends and the adjoining club Aqwa Mist is a great post dinner hang out attracting some famous faces too.
New for the summer – La Sala in the Sky
You have to see it to believe it! La Sala are offering something completely unique to the Costa del Sol this summer with their ‘dinner in the sky’ experience.
Best Club – Pangea
What’s not to like about Pangea, in the heart of Banus with the panoramic views of the port from its simply stunning open air roof terrace with DJ’s spinning some seriously nice tunes to get you in the mood. Inside the club is just as stunning as out, perfect for the slightly chillier evenings in early summer.
nearest beach Clubs – Max Beach (7 mins walk)
Welcome to Max Beach, a magic place where you can enjoy the best of International cuisine, have a cocktail, relax under the sun at our exclusive Sun Club’s swimming pool or keep in shape in an unbeatable setting: a beautiful, rocky little beach nestled before our Mediterranean Sea.
nearest beach Clubs – Oceano Beach Club
(15 mins walk)
El Oceano hotel and restaurant in Miraflores is an oasis of laid-back luxury, between Marbella and La Cala de Mijas on Spain's wonderful Costa del Sol. When we say 'beachfront', we really mean it. We are right on the water's edge with most rooms having unspoiled sea views and the restaurant and bar terrace right on the beachfront. Walk straight from the terrace right on to the Mijas Costa beach boardwalk and you are just a short stroll from the wonderful little town of La Cala de Mijas. Next to the ocean, close to perfection.
